This Woman’s Pedicure Horror Story Will Make You Never Go For A Pedicure Ever Again

There is nothing more relaxing than having someone rub your feet for a few minutes.

Us girls are crazy for a little bit of pampering. However, when we go for a manicure and pedicure, we expect for the tools being used by the nail salon to be a hundred percent hygienic. You wouldn’t want to contract an infection or rash after getting your nails and toenails cut. Nevertheless, the probability of developing a rash or infection increases two folds if the tools are not fresh and cleaned properly. And after reading this Facebook user’s story, you may want to be extra careful!

A recent pedicure at a nail salon landed this woman in the hospital.

A little over a week ago the girls and I had a great day getting nails done and I got a pedicure at the new Nails and Lounge in Noblesville. Welllll said pedicure landed me in an unplanned vacation at the hospital beginning on Tuesday and still here. I have never in my life experienced such pain in my life. Here are some pictures of what it has been like for me. I currently am on the strongest antibiotics available given by IV and still having a hard time getting it under control. So ladies and Gents remember this the next time you want to get a pedicure!!! Continued prayers and positive thoughts greatly appreciated!!!! And thank you to all of you that have checked in on me….you have no idea how much it means to me ☺


The infection clearly got much worse at the end. Many people questioned the tools at the salon because that could’ve been the only way she developed the infection. In her post, Jennifer mentioned that if the scrapers and stones are not sterilized properly, it can spread other people’s germs to you.


Who knew a relaxing pedicure could turn out to be something so terrible?

First and foremost I want to thank everyone for the awesome support and prayers, so much appreciated! I have noticed a lot of you have asked how did this happen when tools are in sanitized packets. Well the pumice stones and the scrapers (which are prohibited in all nail salons but they use them anyway) are not sanitized….AT ALL. Therefore someone else’s germs are always on them. When they use the pumice stones or scrapers it causes tiny breaks in the skin where infection can set in. Also the bowls your feet soak in must be properly sanitized if covers are not used. The place I went to was pretty new and absolutely gorgeous place and I loved it there. Not anymore ? ~hopefully this answers more questions!!! Again THANK YOU ALL for continued prayers and positive juju and will update with pictures post surgery when they unwrap it!!!
